how much the unibomber's hoodie of horror might fetch on the auction block. i'm ken bastida. >> i'm dana king. just when you think the scandal couldn't get any worse we have learned that investigators are looking into new allegations against the dirty police commander. we have known about the drugs but tonight joe vazquez uncovers details about a woman the cop arrested for prostitution who then allegedly went to work for him. watch joe's story closely and he shows how the scandal comes full circle. >> reporter: as commander of c- net, the contra costa narcotics task force. two duties. rid the streets of drug and go after prostitutes and johns. now he admitted to selling the drugs confiscated by the officers in his command and he is facing new accusations he was running a brothel in this pleasant hill strip until. not just running the brothel
but running off the competition. chris butler who rented this office space said norman wielsch used his powers as the task force commander to shut down other houses of prostitution to bolster business at his own brothel. two years ago norman wielsch arrested this woman and charged her with running a house of prostitution in walnut creek. court records show that charge was later reduced to disturbing the peace. jodie sims ended up working here two months later. jordie sims claimed she was helping butler open up a second private investigations office to screen job candidates. but neighbors observed something different. a steady stream of men coming and going late into the night and working girls letting them in. >> thought it it was
prostitution for sure. >> the police department said it was the protocol to refer them to none other than c-net the task force led by norman wielsch. >> we don't want in our community. but to have law enforcement ignore it or actually take advantage of it is a shameful thing. >> in pleasant hill joe vazquez, cbs5. >> norman wielsch's attorney says accusations his client was involved in a brothel in any way, shape or form are false. but the attorney does say that norman wielsch admits to stealing and selling drugs. police now believe that the fatal shooting at a san jose state university parking garage resulted from a domestic dispute. the 54-year-old man allegedly shot and kill his wife and another man. 25-year-old cindy and 26-year- old kyle williams were honor students. they were just weeks away from graduating. a professor who taught both victims said that the two were not involved in a romantic
relationship. evidence recovered at osama bin laden's compound is now providing the feds with the names of terrorist operatives unknown until now. video recorded with helmet cameras suggest there was only one firefight during that raid and it was in the guest house where a courier opened fire and was immediately gunned down. commandos found bin laden in the main house. they got away with garbage bags full of archives including notes about a major attack on the u.s. around the 10th anniversary of 9/11. >> he kept all of that information and he kept all of the data, computers, hard drives. this is what we are analyzing. and it shows that his focus was clearly the united states. >> u.s. officials can't understand why bin laden apparently left what amounts to the keys to his terrorist kingdom lying around in plain
sight. the seals wouldn't have had enough time to fine the stuff if it was hidden. the show we have seen before. gasoline prices go up and oill oil executives go before congress. >> what we have to offer -- >> lovely statement. do you understand how out of touch that is? >> the five largest private oil companies are on track to make a combined $140 billion in profits this year. so democrats want to eliminate 2.1 billion in tax credits. but executives representing those companies argued raising their taxes would push gasoline prices even higher and drive down domestic production. >> i'm going to take my capital and since the u.s. is not attractive i've got to go somewhere else. >> do you think that your subsidy is more important than the financial aid we give to students to go to college.
could you answer that yes or no? >> that is a very difficult question. two totally different questions. >> but we have to weigh those two things. >> the executives argue that oil makes less than other industries and they are right. oil producers make a net profit marginin of 6 cents per dollar compared to 16 cents for the tech industry and 17 cents in the pharmaceutical industry. but the volume is what is helping oil companies rake in billions of dollars in profits. republicans called today's hearing a farce since democrats do not have the votes to eliminate tax credits. watching feeds and walls very carefully on facebook. don't want any posts or comments out there that might hurt their reputation. tonight facebook is accused of trying to do just that. to google. mark sayre is live at facebook headquarters to explain how. mark? >> reporter: well, ken, it is certainly one of silicon valleys more interesting capers
of late. a secret public relations campaign that came out only when a well respected blogger went public. they are two of the biggest titans in silicon valley. facebook c.e.o. mark zuckerberg and larry paige. their respective corporate headquarters five miles apart. so why would facebook try to plant negative stories about google in the news? >> we are friends in the silicon valley until we are not and we have a lot of love/hate relationships relationships in the valerie. >> facebook is paying close attention to what google is doing and they might be scared about it. they looked a little bit like they needed to lash out against google. and they picked a strange way to do it. >> reporter: a representative of a powerhouse tried to generate an article on what he called google's sweeping violations of user privacy but the p.r.
company did not disclose the client who wanted the article written about google was facebook. at issue, a new program called google social circles. >> if you want to put it in a single word it is your life they are interested in. >> reporter: c-net's brian cooley says there is lots at stake. >> to put it simply facebook doesn't like that google is searching social sites like facebook and reflecting some of the results of what you do in your social network life. >> reporter: in a statement facebook says "no smear campaign was authorized or intended. the issues are serious and we should have presented them in a serious and transparent way." for its part the p.r. company says the way this whole incident was handled is against its own policies the assignment from facebook should have been rejected. the company says as for google, ken, no comment. a lot of people talking about all this in silicon valley. the experts though say probably a small thing that will die out shortly but certainly is interesting. a battle of the titans. >> always something going on
between these kind of companies. mark sayre in palo alto. thank you. a landmark study could change the way hiv patients receive treatment around the world. the research spans nine countries. investigators discovered giving drugs to patients early cut their risk of spreading the infection by more than 95%. >> treating individuals who are hiv infected sooner rather than later has a major impact on not having those individuals infect their uninfected sexual partners. >> doctors believe people will seek to start treatment earlier. the results were so significant that the trial was cut short. all hiv infected people were offered immediate treatment with the drug cocktail. tonight the san jose sharks are one step closer to their first stanley cup final appearance. >> we just won a cup.

from his one-room cabin in montana. >> the manifesto is worth more because it is his actual thought process. >> reporter: an appraiser says the hottest item could be the manifesto. that will probably bring in the most catch. >> probably for the manifesto, 30, 50,000. >> reporter: he says the typewriter used to write the manifesto could bring in 10 to $20,000. together they could get an even higher price. and what about the notorious sunglasses and hoody that the uni bomber was seen wearing in his composite sketch. >> it might be 4 to 6000 even though there is a group of them. the hoodie probably 2 to 4000. >> reporter: also for sale the shoes he made with smaller soles attached. the pair could bring in a couple of thousand dollars but the whole collection could haul in $150,000.
it will be an online auction for the man who injured 24 people and killed three with homemade bombs. the same man who fought against development and technology. >> i'm thinking it is not just a little irony, i think it is a lot of irony hearing that ted railed against technology and its impact on society and on civilization and now we are using that very technology to auction off artifacts of his life. >> typically after an investigation, once a legal battle is over, the fbi would destroy the evidence. the proceeds will go to the victims and families. the bidding starting on may 18th lasting for two weeks. an ebay style auction. >> i think they are way low. $150,000. i think there are some freaks who will bet way, way up for this stuff. >> one thing the appraiser said once you get institutions
involved, museums, smithsonians he says the numbers could go way up. we will just have to see in the next couple weeks where the numbers are. >> hopefully it will end up in an institution like a museum. >> yes, hopefully. >> as opposed to someone's private collection. >> weird collection. thank you very much, grace. big brother is watching and if you are where you shouldn't be he is going to take a picture and tell you a thing or two. the can't miss alert system monitoring a bay area park. the show is back to having "two and a half men" but he wasn't one of them. who is stepping in to replace charlie sheen. be as important as getting your stress out. it shows in these strands of your d.n.a. they can increase depending on your lifestyle. >> the new stress test that will measure if healthy living will make a difference. coming up next.
